But only TCH could do his job, he's unique.
Nominations for anyone who could do it worse?
Well you can start with the 600+ other politicians currently in parliament, each and every one of whom has the personal motto - 'Sod the job, look after No 1'.

OK I'm not saying he deserves £113k but let's be real. The post is one of the hardest jobs in government and should have a hefty salary attached. Done well, I think that a minister should earn that much.

remember that it's not only his salary which is a reward for being BLiar's pal, plus he'll get an automatic peerage as well as non-executive directorships on loads of companies and all the other perks which will make him a multi-millionaire. Every one of our senior politicians goes on to become extremely wealthy - even if they're corrupt beyond belief (Archer, Mandelson, Aitken...) - cos they get the contacts. Jobs for the boys.

I think TCH deserves to be strung up. Imagine the laughing stock - proud Sergeant Major looking up at his Warrant parchment thingy and seeing the signature of that nosher on it. How embarassing!

Not forgetting ofcourse the very nice pension recently negotiated with Norwhich Union they will all get, and oh yes thats right it is a hell of a lot more than the one forced upon you
